After a year and a half of driving my 2013 GTI I have to say, Great Car!
This is our road trip car, so it is used primarily for highway cruising and long days of driving.
It is fast, fun and frugal.
What more could you ask for?
Great power and smooth acceleration.
Firm, but comfortable ride.
Wonderful seats and comfortable interior, I am 6' 2" and have plenty of room.
I have averaged 31 MPG over the first 15,000 miles.
The only problem I have had is needing to replace 2 tires.
I think 17 inch wheels might be better for me, the 18's just don't have enough side wall for the roads I seem to drive on.
